A dear friend hosted one of these a couple of years ago and I had so much fun I thought I'd try it again!
The concept is very simple - you get tipsy on the intoxicating substance of your choice and then you write a penpal letter. You're going to need to write a letter that's one page (front and back, roughly 8.5 x 11 inch size) - either handwritten or typed on whatever you like. If you think your drinking is going to affect your handwriting and make it hard to read, I'd suggest typing it instead. Then put it in an envelope with a stamp and mail it out by the due date. Easy peasy!
Obviously, common sense rules. Don't do anything dangerous or unsafe. You're just supposed to drink and write a letter. And don't flake. If you're not willing to meet the swap requirements, don't join. I realize things happen sometimes. If you find you're going to be late sending your letter, CONTACT YOUR PARTNER. Most people are understanding unless you don't communicate with them. I'm going to keep an eye on participants and if anyone's rating drops below the cutoff between sign-up and due date, or if anything funky goes on, I reserve the right to drop them from the swap. I'll allow newbies to join as long as they have a fully completed profile.
Since this isn't partner-specific, you can start your drinking and your letter any time you want between now and the due date. New Year's Eve is just around the corner...
If you're easily offended, this may not be the swap for you.
As far as rating, you're not rating on content. If it's one page, front and back and it's on time, even if it's incoherent, then you rate them a "5". If they send something extra special or some extra goodies, then give them a heart.
I will angel this swap if we wind up with flakers. Just contact me and let me know.
If you have any questions, message me. Otherwise, have fun and write responsibly! ;)
